Build Your Own Theme Park: A Paper Cut-Out Book
When I first opened this book, I thought, “Oh, this looks fun!” You get to make your own amusement park out of paper. Some of the projects are a roller coaster, ticket booth, vendor machines, characters, etc. They are really cute.
The project pages are perforated, so you can take them out of the book. You have to cut out the pieces with scissors. Then, you fold them and glue the pieces together.
It wasn’t very easy to make the things. The paper tore easily. Small, but crucial, details made it hard to cut some things out. The pieces are hand drawn, so the lines aren’t even. That makes them harder to cut and put together. The vending machine wobbles, because the bottom isn’t flat. They had lots of pictures to describe what the finished product should look like, which is helpful, but I cut into a piece of the ticket booth, thinking it was one of those pictures. The instructions were good and clear, but there were not that many.
I bet it would be fun for kids to play with or to just display!
It would also be fun if there were some sections that had the shape of objects, but you could draw on them yourself. I’m really inspired to make my own theme park now! The end of the book encourages you to do just that.
